Bald Eagle Migration Update: March 31, 1997
Peter NyeWonderful news arrived this morning from Peter Nye. As we reported in our March 24th update , there have been problems with N #98's transmitter. We were relieved to hear that a new signal was received yesterday, as you'll read on the note belwo from Nye. But first, consider today's Challenge Question:
Guess the Nest

To: Journey North
Sunday, March 30
The great news though is that she is transmitting again, and appears to have moved 150 miles or so north of the 03/23 location. She is now about 175 miles north of Ottawa City near a place called Parent (a bit west of this). We've (down here in Albany, NY) had very windy conditions the past few days here. Not sure where the winds were coming from (but am sure Tony knows!), but many migrant raptors appeared in the skies around here today, Easter Sunday. Extremely gusty today. As the 03/30 reading shows, it appears that N98 stayed in this new location at least a few days. Don't know if I mentioned this before, but we hope to visit her nest if all goes according to plan and all the radio gear holds out.
Peter Nye with Eagle # N99
Our immature (no disrespect intended) friend N99 seems to have found an area to his liking, at least for the time being. Recall the last fix on 03/20 was just into Canada above the St. Lawrence. He seems to be hanging out around the river, with the last two roost locations around Amherst Island (Canadian, Ontario), just west of Cape Vincent, NY. Here are the data since last transmission:
